I have been interested in cartography since I was a child. Coming into college, I was not aware there is more to geography besides mapping. Over the course of a few semesters, I soon discovered all the different disciplines I could study within one program and ended up transferring into GGIS after a year in General Studies.
I hope to acquire enough knowledge to pursue a career in telecommunications. I am interested in that particular field as it has a huge impact on the way we learn, work, and communicate with each other.
I definitely recommend taking some courses to see if geography is something that interests you. There is a wide variety of courses to choose from and some of them can even count towards general education requirements which encourages academic exploration.
